Prayer For Healing A Sick Pet

Pinterest WhatsApp

Some of you may read this title and think “A prayer for healing a sick pet, really?”


The truth we know that in most countries animals are kept outside of the house.  So I would imagine some of you would not think of praying for a sick pet.  Especially when you think of all the people that you know that need prayer.  I’m hoping that by the time you read this article, you will change your mind about this.

You see, to many people their pet is much like a member of the family.  This is their baby.

I am also convinced that dogs were put on this earth to teach us how to love unconditionally.

The first time someone asked me to pray for their sick dog it did take me by surprise but since I told her I would do it I went with the request to God and asked what was His perspective on praying for a dog or a cat.

These are the thoughts that came to me:

1. If pets weren’t important to God then He never would have commanded Noah to take two of each type and put them on the ark when He was about to destroy the earth with a flood. (Genesis 7:16).  Let’s face it He wouldn’t have created them in the first place!

2. Isaiah 65 which is the picture of the new heaven and the new earth has the wolf and the lamb eating together while lions will eat straw.  Even a snake is mentioned! This is the picture and harmony among all animals on the new earth.

3.  Remember that man was the one that brought sickness and death to the earth through sin.  This means that animals, much like man, was created to live forever.  Even the plant life would live forever because there would be no death. Can you imagine your garden blooming year round and nothing dying? We are the ones responsible for animals getting sick.

4.  Nowhere in the bible does it say that your pet hamster, pigs or pet fish has a soul that needs to be saved. While pets are important to God, they are not to be viewed above humans.  You shouldn’t love your animals more than you love a fellow human being.  We have souls that need to be saved and animals do not. The bible clearly shows us that God puts a greater love on humans and so should you. Matthew 6:26 (NIV) “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

5.  Revelation 19 has Jesus coming back on a white horse.  Through this we know that animals are in heaven.

So now that we have established that pets are important to God and that they are in heaven, let’s talk about the process of healing.

Are you wondering: Can prayer heal the sick animal?

Here are some scriptures to consider before praying for your animals

Proverbs 12:10 (NIV) “The righteous care for the needs of their animals,but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.”

Psalm 145:9 (NIV) “The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made.”

Exodus 23:12 (NIV) “Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest, and so that the slave born in your household and the foreigner living among you may be refreshed.”

The sabbath rest was not only intended for you but for your animals as well.  Since we have dominion over animals we should be the ones enforcing the rest.

What does the bible say about healing?

Jesus was known in the Bible as the great healer and there are many healing prayer scriptures that you will find speaking of those that he healed. Do you know the story of the woman who had the “issue of blood”? It was her faith that gave her the strength to press on through the crowds until she got to Jesus. She was praying for healing and her faith was so strong that she knew that just by the simple act of touching the hem of his garment she could get that healing that she was praying for. It was the full belief that she had in the healing power of Jesus that caused her to do what she did – in this case she did not even ask! She just touched a piece of Jesus and she was made whole because she believed.

Your sick pet cannot ask either but you know what they need so you can make supplication for them.  Activate your faith and belief in the healing power of Jesus and ask for them.

Can you recall a place in the Bible where Jesus refused to grant the request of a prayer for healing? No, there is no record of that.  Ask God to strengthen your faith so you can believe for healing for your sick animal.

Here is a little prayer for healing your sick pet

Lord I know that I am your child and as such you hold me higher than the angels and the animals that you have created. Even so, pets are all important to you whether it is a dog, cat, lizard, snake, hamster, pig, a fish whatever it may be, you created it. Lord, I thank you for your awesomeness and power, for providing for my every need and the needs of my animal. So, Lord, I come to you now praying for healing for my sick pet, ________. I am in need of your help. You know the exact illness that is afflicting my pet even though he/she cannot speak; I trust your divine guidance in_________life. Help them Lord; deliver _________ from any pain and suffering. Grant ___________ your peace as I place him/her in your capable hands. I ask for healing, I ask for strength, I ask O Lord that your perfect will be accomplish in this pet’s life for your glory, in Jesus name. Amen

If this prayer has blessed you and your animal, please share it with others.

      This comment brought tears to my eyes.

      God’s tender mercies is over all His works. Your darling Papi is healed in Jesus Name, Amen.

      My pup was sick and I prayed with all my heart for his recovery and he’s now all over the place pulling my toes with his little teeth to the glory of God. God hears our prayers.

      Do let us know about Papi’s health.

    Please can you pray for my dog Rony. He is 14 years old, and he have big big problem with teeth, gum and whole mouth cavity. Next week he should go for surgery, because he have hole in his gum and it causes pain and gleet. But that surgery as his vet said is risk, because of his age and kidney disease. But I with my family believe and praying, that God is our healer and also healer for our dog, and He will restore health of our dog Rony. We believe that God will do supernatural healing for our dog and will recover his gum, and set of teeth and kidneys. But if I could ask you please pray for my dog.

    PLEASE PLEASE I beg that you can pray for my dogs, I am so upset and I am begging that our wonderful Lord can place his healing hands on both Lenny and Poppy. Lenny’s head seems to be caving in on one side, he is so full of of life for an old boy and I know he has a few more years left in him, but I worry about his head, PLEASE pray for him. Poppy had an op over two months ago for her knee, she is only 5, she seemed t be getting better but now she is struggling again. Please Lord have mercy on them both and restore them to health. I pray for all the sick animals and pray that you will heal them. Dear Lord, I thank you, I love you and I put my whole faith in you. In Jesus name. AMEN.

    Please pray for my Dog Luna. She has been by my side for eleven years.. She is little only 20 lbs but has protected me with heart of a lioness when I was attacked by a pit bull… She never left my side when I had a severe illness, was there for me thru the hardest times in my life.. Never got depressed when we had to move four times in one year.. Never gave up the fight to recover after having four operations in one year.. Always smiling and giving kisses.. She has been dealing with bladder stones, heart valve prolapse,respiratory problems, gallbladder issues. She will have a liver biopsy on 1-20-2019 to diagnose a liver mass.. With all this she loves life, and loves just being near me.. I don’t want her to ever suffer and have no quality of life.Im so afraid this may be one battle to big for us to overcome.. She holds my heart and makes me be stronger and strive to be better in all aspects of life.. Please hold her in prayer to be healed and have some quality of life ahead .. I just can’t imagine my life without her sweetness in my life.. I need God to have Mercy on both of us… God Bless..

    I will pray for all your pets recoveries….I know how special our pets are to us and continue to give us unconditional love at ALL times.
    At this time please pray for my 6 year old mini schnauzer…Dusty who is stricken with lymphoma. I pray daily for her and ask our dear Lord to spare her from death. I am also dealing with a young son who is on drugs and who is with bad company.
    …and am looking after my 89 year old mother.

    I take what Our Lord gives me in stride and take one day at a time..

    God’s Blessings to ALL of you…Chris
